Live from New York, it's a small army of disco-loving, French-speaking, fringe-sporting indie musicians who made late night television history!

Can you complete the Del Close Marathon?
Project Runway:The Show That Changed Fashion The National Arts Club Friday, 6 p.m., free "Unwearable" was defined and redefined. Sewing got hip. We became frighteningly desensitized to the image of another human being crying. This is what 10 seasons of Project Runway will do. But at its best the se ... More >>
Seth Meyers discusses his life's top stories
Blerg. We felt sad and hungry the second the 30 Rock finale ended last night, so Ben & Jerry's new ice cream is well-timed. The company teamed up with NBC for their newest flavor, named after Tina Fey's character, Liz Lemon: a lemon-flavored Greek frozen yogurt with a blueberry-lavender swirl. F ... More >>
30 Rock wraps up tonight, as the Tina Fey-penned show signs off with its final episode. During the show's seven seasons of hilarity, it's never been shy of weaving rap references into its script (a tick helped by Donald Glover a/k/a/ Childish Gambino holding down a writer's position at one point). S ... More >>
If Liz Lemon taught us anything on 30 Rock, it's that you can never eat enough junk food. Tina Fey's brainchild sitcom ends on Thursday, and Ben & Jerry's will celebrate (mourn?) by releasing an ice cream flavor in the show's honor.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were a scream as hosts of the Golden Globes last night. They were wicked, witty, and spontaneous, and added some lovely tones of mirthful mockery to the proceedings, which could otherwise bog down in self congratulation. If Seth MacFarlane can do even half as well at the Os ... More >>
Don’t call them “comediennes”
This has to happen. In what could be one of the most interesting Saturday Night Live episodes in recent memory, it has been reported that Lorne Michaels, the producer of the legendary sketch comedy show, has offered the Romney tent a chance for their candidate to show off his comedic flare ...

Remember that Oscar winning foreign film Life Is Beautiful, in which Roberto Benigni tells his son that the holocaust is a big carnival game, to make it go down a wittle easier? So what would you tell a child today to make them feel better about certain glaring realities in the world?
How do you make a good musical out of lousy music?
Hoo, hoo, Fox News is so funny! Instead of using an image of the actual Sarah Palin in their news report about how Palin was "50/50″ on running for president in 2012, they used a picture of Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live. We presume this was an accident. In other Sarah ... More >>
Hey, maybe she still is, for all I know. Anyway, that's one of the revelations in the E! True Hollywood Story about the former Alaska Governor, airing on April 21 at 10 PM ET/PT. Here are the juiciest quotes the show culled from various experts who've observed the scary lady in action. *A ... More >>
Gourmet Over the past several weeks, pie has been repeatedly touted as the next big trend in desserts. Yes, it's time for the cupcake to disappear within Dante's Third Circle of Hell, but is pie, America's iconic diner food, worthy of being the next big trend? No, and here's why.

Why is it only the male stars of Saturday Night Live who end up with the big movie careers? Flip back through the years, and think about it: John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Eddie Murphy, Dana Carvey, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Will Ferrell, and tons more e ...

We will never own one of these. Whee, the 62nd Annual (Primetime!) Emmys have been announced. There aren't that many surprises: As usual, HBO rocks, as does Mad Men, True Blood, 30 Rock, Glee, Neil Patrick Harris, and Tina Fey. Losties may get another chance to see the objects of their affect ... More >>
Today, that is. (Spare me votes for Carole Lombard). Your choices are:
Congratulations to New York's girl with the most cake, Tina Fey, for winning the 2010 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the nation's highest honor for those with easy, grossly unfair access to Jon Hamm comedy. The 30 Rock actress/writer will accept the award in November in a ceremony at th ... More >>
In an interview in this month's Esquire, Tina Fey has an American Pie kind of moment, courtesy of a certain doughnut shop on Greenpoint's Manhattan Avenue.
Tina Fey (pictured) reveals that she "couldn't give it away" -- meaning her virginity -- when she was a young lass, prompting respected journalistic organization ABC News to run a slide show of "Stars' Sexperiences." You would imagine these Sexperiences would be calculated to include simila ... More >>
The grandaddy of late-night comedy shows, Saturday Night Live, got a boost when Emmy awards went to Tina Fey's priceless Sarah Palin impression and Justin Timberlake's equally riotous impersonation of a host. And they just got even bigger buzz when a new cast member dropped the f bomb and Ma ... More >>

Emmy-nominated The Family Guy featuring Emmy-nominated Seth MacFarlane. For us the joy of the Emmy Nominations, announced this morning, is in the less-well-known categories.

Click here--NOW--and read my gut-wrenchingly hilarious interview with Will Ferrell, who has brought his impersonation of Dubya to Broadway, paving the way for the inevitable production of Annie Get Your Gun starring Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. After that, can Step Brothers The Musical be far behind?
I know that a defeated Sarah Palin will be welcomed back to her governorship of Alaska tomorrow night--maybe--but if THEY reject her too, where should we tell the illustrious Caribou Barbie to go? I have (surprise) a few ideas: *QVC. Duh. *The set of 30-Rock. She can be Tina Fey's body double, a j ... More >>
Sensible people took Sarah Palin's amusing SNL appearance for what it was. imjustsayin77, for instance, twittered, "Sarah Palin actually has a little rhythm. No wonder she's got five kids. Shorty can work it!" But rightbloggers, who are not like you and me, saw in Palin's cameo portents, prejudice, ... More >>
She was great! Poised and hilarious and totally in control during the entire riotous sketch. No, wait, that was Tina Fey. Palin's brief appearance--spent commenting on Fey with Lorne Michael et al--was only OK, golly gosh. She failed to get a laugh on a couple of surefire emissions, but that happens ... More >>
Sarah Palin is set to appear on "Saturday Night Live," where Tina Fey has been lampooning her mercilessly for weeks. The Palin schtick has been great for SNL's ratings and this should be too. The Sarah Palin Blog (not official, we don't think) adds a weird sidelight: "Originally, the McCain campaign ... More >>
Our colleagues at Sound of the City have already advised you give Steven Soderburgh's Che a miss, but we expect the film will draw because, as everyone has been saying since it was announced, it's perfect casting -- "Benicio Del Toro is Che Guevara."
